De Vere launches new online booking engine for meetings and events
De Vere, a collection of mansion house estates, contemporary hotels and event destinations, has announced that it will be launching a new integrated meetings and events booking engine on its website.
The partnership with MeetingPackage, a cloud-based meetings and events booking platform, will initially be available at De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, located in London’s West End. The service will be available from today (10 May) and De Vere will continue to roll out the service across its estates and mansion house properties in the coming months.
The booking engine will enable event planners to see real-time room availability across a number of hotels, search, filter and book event spaces, and book meetings on the go as the system will be fully mobile optimised.
Alan Corlett, chief commercial officer at De Vere, said: “As we continue to invest in our digital and ecommerce platform, we are now looking to roll out a new opportunity for De Vere with MeetingPackage. This is an online meeting room management system which will allow greater flexibility for our bookers, sight of real-time availability and allow meeting space to be secured online, as well as opening another channel for which they can communicate directly with individual hotel teams."
Joonas Ahola, MeetingPackage CEO, added: "We are excited to be working with De Vere on implementing its vision for delivering the online booking of meeting rooms. Our software is all about making processes easy and transparent for the booker while on the venue side saving time, money and unlocking ancillary revenue."
